As Jesus prepared for His passion and death, He told His disciples;
‘Let not your heart be troubled. You believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’ s house there are many mansions. If not, I would have told you: because I go to prepare a place for you. And if I shall go, and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and will take you to myself; that where I am, you also may be.
I will not leave you orphans, I will come to you. Yet a little while: and the world seeth me no more. But you see me: because I live, and you shall live. In that day you shall know, that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.’ John 14:1-3, 18-20
So as we feel alone and with all the world against us, let us believe what Jesus told His first disciples and not let our hearts be troubled. Jesus is as close as our soul; And I, Jesus, am in YOU.
